March 18 sew-in

Our sew-in tonight was fun! Some generous members brought a lot of food, which the rest of us enjoyed munching on. Although tonight’s sew-in was only four hours long, people got a lot done!

Five members made our free project: a Japanese-style cross-back apron.

I forgot to take a picture of the backs of their aprons, though! >_<

Expo bunting sew-in

In order to prepare for our booth at the 2015 Woman Expo, some wonderful guildies got together to sew OMQG bunting for decorations!

Everyone contributed ideas for how the bunting should be made, so it was a happy group effort. The assembly line was quite impressive, as was the sharing of knowledge — some people tried out skills they weren’t familiar with, and some were super helpful with their tips and tricks.

The bunting ended up even more adorable than I had ever imagined it would be, and I can’t wait to see it at our expo booth!

Epically long January sew-in!

We just had our first (properly) epically long sew in this past weekend — it ran from 10am til 8pm! It was wonderful seeing everyone who came, and people got a lot done. There was a ton of food, so we got to munch on yummy things all day long. Norine’s Ritz+Rolos were awesome!

I spaced out and forgot to get pictures of Val’s and Norine’s projects, but I can steal a pic off Val’s instagram feed… during the sew-in, we found out from Mai that our local Fabric Mart was carrying bolts of Cotton & Steel! Val and Norine left right away to build their stashes. 😀

Emily stopped by for a few hours to work on a beautifully precise star quilt for herself.

Trinia worked on adorable little boy quilts — many people commented on the cute lobster print!

Mai continued with her seriously gorgeous Aviatrix Medallion quilt. She’s going to have to keep an eye on it when she brings it in for show and tell, cause it could grow legs and walk away (back to my house)…
